ResearchNet is a virtual meeting place for the research community which provides the following benefits:
- offers a one stop shop for the research community;
- consolidates administrative functions for granting agencies and institutions;
- simplifies processes for application and peer review; and
- allows granting agencies to innovate and try new ways of conducting business.
ResearchNet is a tool available on the Internet which allows the research community to electronically submit grant registrations and applications, to obtain funding-related information, and to actively share, collaborate on, and complete administrative tasks. The applicant is able to submit their information electronically and it is acknowledged electronically. This allows granting agencies to receive and begin processing the data and documents which comprise the application almost immediately.
It also serves as a tool for the processing and submission of peer reviews. ResearchNet is used throughout the peer review process to enable the input of electronic peer reviews, access to submitted reviews, posting of decision results, and subsequent access to these results. Applicants access their Notices of Decision, Review and Scientific Officer notes on-line via a single site. Peer review committees have on-line access to application information.
ResearchNet is structured as a secure internet portal which provides a virtual meeting place for the research community, and it utilizes existing form utilities such as the Common CV system. The portal has been designed to ensure data integrity, security and privacy while providing faster access to information.
